Does it have romance?

Emma Not really.

If you want romance, the movie has A LOT more. There's only a brief hint at romance in the book, but even then, the main character refers to the female in question as his "favorite female friend". It never goes past that.

There is plenty of love, but different kinds of love (i.e. love between family, friends).

Brittany Quarters There's like... not even holding hands. Like... none.
Except in a dream... but that isn't even really romance.
